Proverbs 17:22 says” A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Proverbs 15:13 says” A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.
Who don’t like humor and laughter? I know I love it matter of fact I love it so much I make it a habit to find something to laugh at every day.
You may be thinking I must be a little weird but no I love laughing. When I say laughing I am talking about one of those belly laughs where you laugh so much that your belly aches.
Even when I am faced with life issues I must laugh I know at that very moment I don’t laugh but once I get a hold of myself and get a perspective then I laugh, for if I don’t then I will cry and not to say there is something wrong with crying for crying releases what is on the inside of us. But when I laugh I am laughing at the trouble, letting it know that it can’t stop me from being who I am. For I am not defined by my troubles.
In this verse we see that when our hearts are cheerful it brings medicine to us, it comforts us and bring peace, look at it this way, you have a headache everything you have taken has not helped the headache, so you go to the doctors and they give you something that they know that will stop the headache, you take it and within minutes you can already feel yourself feeling much better.
Why? because the power of the medicine they gave you has better strength. Same as with this verse God’s word has power and when we take His word and uses it in our lives we too will start to feel better. Got it AMEN!
